On Friday, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law a bill which will force medical personnel and pregnancy centers to make abortion referrals and tell clients about the “benefits” of abortion against their will.
Illinois Right to Life notes that Senate Bill 1564 is “poorly written,” as the language does not specify a list of benefits to be discussed, how precisely they must be presented, or whether a physician can “legally state in his medical opinion that there are no benefits to abortion.” Continue reading →
Libertarian presidential nominee and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson rails against the “steady erosion” of “personal freedom in this country,” “a nation that was literally founded on the notion of liberty.” But as Live Action’s Adam Peters details, he doesn’t particularly seem to care that babies’ liberty has eroded to the point where they can be legally killed for any reason before even leaving the womb.
This week, the Washington Examiner’s Timothy Carney interviewed Johnson at the Democrat National Convention he shared his views on abortion and that he wouldn’t protect pro-life Americans’ conscience rights.
The abortion industry claims that if abortion was outlawed, it would mean a return to the “coat hanger” or “back-alley” abortions. They argue that abortions would no longer be the “safe” procedures they are now, and women would continue having them at much the same rate. However, research shows that these arguments are false.
Poor women who need health care in Texas don’t need Planned Parenthood, and the state is footing the bill to show them the truth. The Lone Star State, which defunded the abortion chain, has unveiled its Healthy Texas Women program, proving that the only thing a woman can get at Planned Parenthood that she can’t get elsewhere is an abortion.
(Pregnancy Help News) Safe to say, it’s been a strange month of July for two of the most crime-ridden places in the state of California.
While one city, Oakland—home of the highest crime rate in the state—was busy establishing a new law to crack down on nonprofit pregnancy help centers, another city known for crime—Los Angeles—cited three community funded nonprofits for failing to comply with a law that is currently under review with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Last month the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a series of Texas abortion safety laws, including requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals and for abortion facilities to be held to the same standards as other outpatient surgery centers.
Most Americans likely think of the pro-life movement as an outgrowth of Roe v. Wade, but it actually reaches much farther back in time. Roe v. Wade simply accelerated the process by thrusting it into the national limelight.
(The Daily Signal) The American Medical Association is sticking by its influential report asserting that unborn babies cannot feel pain at 20 weeks, despite subsequent studies finding otherwise. Three of the report’s five authors had or later would have ties to the abortion industry.
Pro-life activist John Preston of Queensland was fined $3,000 earlier this week after being convicted on charges stemming from an April pro-life protest in the Australian state of Tasmania. Preston, along with Raymond and Penny Stallard, were charged with violating a 2013 state law which declared protesting within 150 metres of an abortion clinic illegal.
Indiana Governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence claimed on Thursday that if he and Donald Trump reach the White House, “We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”
“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” the former Congressman said at a town hall event in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He went on to stress that judicial nominees alone were enough to make the 2016 election hugely consequential for the pro-life cause, as those decisions “will impact our Supreme Court for the next forty” years.
At Romper, a website that claims to be about figuring out what motherhood means, Danielle Campoamor wrote about her experience having an abortion in a post titled, “10 Things No One Will Tell You About Your Abortion, But I Will.” She talked about being in an abusive relationship, and tried to normalize abortion by shutting down potential debate about whether abortion should be legal. But while Campoamor rattles off some “facts” to make abortion seem like it’s no big deal, there are also 10 things most women won’t hear about abortion…
On Tuesday, Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards addressed the Democrat National Convention, and it was everything you’d expect: hiding the violence of abortion in flowery rhetoric about “women’s care,” lavishing praise upon Hillary Clinton, and fear-mongering about the consequences of defunding her organization.
In a report released last Friday, the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) urged lawmakers in the Philippines to legalize abortion “without delay.” Abortion is currently banned in the Philippines with no explicit exceptions.
